Eight cards to make...



This card kit is an actual Christmas gift, from my sister, who knows how much I enjoy making cards from kits like this one.

On the eighth day of Christmas, two true luvs gave each other:
EIGHT days in Mexico



Departure is many weeks from now, but hopefully will have time to lose enough weight to fit into my old swimsuit LOL

Auntie: those little ornaments are adorable!!



On the ninth day of Christmas...
NINE assorted angels:





(there's plenty of angels in my house, they're just not all in one place and they vary wildly in size, so had to do a sort of "collage")

Wow SpanishLiz! Those are WAY too pretty to eat!
Do you know how the decorating of the one on the far left (with the snowflakes) was done? Is it a fondant? Hand"painted" with icing? Stencil? They are ALL lovely, but that one has me particularly intrigued : )

Sorry, I don't know how any of the decorating was done. They do look too nice to eat though, don't they?

Hi. A little question.
It's only a song or it's a love tradition,too.

joecali, It is all based on the well known song, which you probably know. The 12 Days of Christmas I don't think I would be very happy if a guy bought me all those things. What the heck would you do with "12 Drummers Drumming"? (Don't anybody answer that, this is a family site.)

I heard that the song may have been created during the Religious Wars of the 16th Century as a cryptic means of teaching English children their catechism.





Ten Tired Tulips.
They were fresh and pretty when my grandson gave them to me on Christmas Day.
Teddy's looking the worse for wear also.

It has been claimed that the song is a mnemonic for the tenets of the Catholic faith, but Snopes disagrees.

I received a lovely present from a scrapbooking pal: 10 individual little bits and pieces, just for my pleasure:

Ooh, good pal! smile

...Ten endangered pennies...



Word is that the humble penny may soon be scrapped in Canada, partly because it costs one and one half cents to make a coin worth one cent!

Liz; Australia's one and two-cent coins were phased out several years ago. I think five-cent coins will go soon.

Sharon; Scrumptious looking sweets - lovingly hand-made, I would guess.

Jakeroo; My first job was a junior assistant in a maternity ward. Liliums were often in the mothers' bouquets, which I tended and watered daily. I have loved lilies ever since.
(It was a Presbyterian hospital, so I was also introduced to Haggis - but that's another story).





Eleven slices of Christmas Cake.

Thanks Minkpenny They are all great, I think.

Ren: those are SO cute. I've always been envious of folks with pierced ears (it's the ONLY part of my body I would consent to having holes in it ... besides the space between my ears that is lol), but I have several metal allergies, sigh. Anyway, I really hope you find the missing hohoho!

Auntie: Lilies are in my top 5 as well. If it wasn't for their AMAZING pollen staining talents, they'd probably be number one lol (shortly after that picture I cut off the stamens... um sorry guys no offence lol)

and haggis? oh my I'd like to hear that story! Speaking of which, 3 of my 4 grandparents were Scottish, sooooooooooo....

On the eleventh day of Christmas ...
ELEVEN Scottish Shortbreads



(this was supposed to be 12, but I ate one before I took the picture lol)

Well done for only eating one! As to metal allergies, apparently painting the hooks with clear nail polish or varnish works as that way you are not touching metal. I have had real fun with earrings. My class always check which ones I am wearing today. At one time I could go a few months with a different pair every day.
